League of American Bicyclists Names 2009 Spring Bicycle Friendly Communities and States
The League of American Bicyclists has announced May as National Bike month! In celebration they have recognized 13 new Bicycle Friendly Communities and three communities received higher standards. Cities, states and communities can receive platinum, gold, silver, and bronze based on a 75-item questionnaire about a region’s commitment to bicyclists across six key areas: legislation, policies and programs, infrastructure, education and encouragement, evaluation and planning, and enforcement. Boulder, Colorado joins Davis, California and Portland, Oregon in the premier recognition of a Platinum Bicycle Friendly Community.
